Madhya Pradesh grants third higher pay scale to government employees
BHOPAL: Madhya Pradesh cabinet chaired by Chief
Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan here Tuesday decided to grant third higher pay
scale to the government employees who have got benefit of only 2
promotion/time-bound promotion/time scale since appointment in government
service and who have completed 30 years or more in service as on July 1, 2014
or thereafter. The decision will entail a burden of Rs 418 crore on the exchequer.
Service period for third higher pay scale will be
calculated on the basis of current service since assuming post after being
directly recruited through competitive/selection test. The government servants
who are eligible for time scale on the basis of service period and whose
promoted post’s time scale pay scale/grade pay is less in accordance with
service rules, their educational qualifications prescribed in service rules
will not be considered for eligibility for time scale/pay scale.
Mukhyamantri Grameen Parivahan Yojana
The cabinet decided to implement Mukhyamantri Grameen
Parivahan Yojana for making available safe and convenient public transport
service in remote villages and tribal areas of the state. This will also help
socio-economic growth in these areas.
Under the scheme, those roads will be considered as
rural roads which connect villages to the nearest main roads or with blocks/tehsils
(except district headquarters). These roads may also include parts of main
roads, but not more than 10 kilometres long.
The public transport vehicles to be plied on these
roads will be given a specific colour for their unique identity so that they
are not misused in other areas. Mukhyamantri Grameen Parivahan Sewa will be
inscribed on both sides of the vehicles, which will be equipped with GPS.
Lifetime motor vehicle tax will be realised for the
vehicles of Mukhyamantri Grameen Parivahan Yojana at the rate of one percent.
Permit will be issued for 5 years and additional motor vehicle tax will not
have to be paid on renewal.
For providing employment through this scheme,
capital/interest subsidy will be given under “Mukhyamantri Swarozgar Yojana”.
The Service will be monitored by a state-level committee. District/Regional
Transport Officers will monitor the scheme at district level.
